Preview: the new Audi AllroadMar 2nd, 2016
The new Audi Allroad quattro combines great ride comfort with off-road qualities to carve out a unique position in its segment. Thanks to the standard quattro drive and the increased ground clearance, the car also keeps on easily driving where the paved road ends.
Ground clearance increased by 34 mm compared with the A4 Avant and the look of a strong character are the identifying features of the new A4 allroad quattro. It displays a strikingly V-shaped front end with a distinctive bumper and model-specific air inlets. Vertical chrome slats adorn its sculpted Singleframe grille; the robust underbody guard and the rear diffuser are finished in selenite silver.
The flared wheel arches and the rear bumper are finished in matt structure gray or body color. There are 14 interior colors from which to choose. Modifications similar to those of the A4 Avant can be found at the front end, headlights, side sills, rear body, lighting and interior.
Inside, the new Allroad offers a wealth of intelligent technologies. At the same time, operation has become even more intuitive with the new Audi MMI display and operating concept. The optional Audi virtual cockpit, a fully digital instrument cluster, presents the most important information in graphic form on its high-resolution 12.3 inch LCD screen with brilliant resolution, a high level of detail and carefully calculated effects.
MMI control, which is located on the center console, has also been redesigned and serves as the main control element. A touchpad is integrated in the MMI control panel for the top infotainment system, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and a large 8.3-inch monitor. It can be used to zoom in and out and to input characters.
The whole MMI control logic is similar to that of a smartphone, including the intelligent free text search function. The new, natural voice control system can also recognize easily understandable input in everyday language, such as: “I want to call Peter Miller.” Audi can also install an optional head-up display.
